I got sand in my shoes.
M exfoliated my leg with beach sand.
M found my old Gameboy and we realized it still worked.

Here is an awesome email I got today:
Dorothy, a publishing project is very pleased to announce that our first two titles are now shipping on orders through our website.
Each book is $16 w/free shipping, or you can order both together (through either book's page) for $25 w/free shipping.
EVENT FACTORY is the first in a trilogy of novels Renee Gladman is writing about the invented city-state of Ravicka. It is an astounding book that Eileen Myles says "has the strange glamour of Kafka's Amerika . . . but the narrator, lusty and persuasive, is growing up."
Our edition of British writer Barbara Comyns's WHO WAS CHANGED AND WHO WAS DEAD carries a new introduction by Brian Evenson in which he says: "In this book in particular, [Comyns] is better than any writer I know at striking an impossible balance between accuracy, wonder, and disgust. She creates a paradoxical sense of a world that might want to embrace you lovingly--unless instead it wants to smother you." Read more about the book here.
